Catherine Snow (Genomics England)

Venkataraman et al (PMID 28390872) summary article on SARS-CoV but also include review evidence from their lab and others that pulmonary fibrosis is caused by a hyperactive host response to lung injury mediated by epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) signaling.

Mitchell et al (PMID: 31616667) states that EGFR is important during influenza infection, but the role it plays changes for lethal versus non-lethal infections
